Many Christian churches teach that salvation is as easy as acknowledging to God that you are a sinner and then saying a beautiful prayer about your belief in Jesus Christ. They say at that moment you will receive the Holy Spirit, be born again, and become a new creation. After completing this, they also say you are now in the Christian family and will live with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in heaven for all of eternity, regardless of how you live your life from that point on.
For author Marty Vanderzanden, this teaching never sat well in his heart. He has always wondered if there was more to gaining entrance to heaven than just saying a prayer. In They Say You Are Saved, Vanderzanden examines and highlights what Jesus says about our entrance into heaven.
A series of short stories and lessons delivered by God, They Say You Are Saved discusses the importance of developing an intimate bond with and having faith in Jesus Christ, as well as living your life as if you believe. Including a short Bible study, Vanderzanden encourages you to make your relationship with Jesus Christ a top priority.
